August 9, 2007: Thai police disciplined with Hello Kitty armband



xoB finds this story which explains

Quote:
A pink "Hello Kitty" armband wrapped around a khaki-clad arm is shouting for attention at the police Crime Suppression Division.

It is a new disciplinary measure introduced especially for police investigators who refuse to play by the rules.

Starting this week, the warning will come in the form of the popular Japanese cat cartoon sitting on a heart on a pink background.

"The same old warnings no longer work for some officers," CSD acting chief Pongpat Chayaphan said.

"This new approach is intended to engender a feeling of guilt and discourage them from repeating the offence."

Offences liable to earn an officer the pink Kitty include failing to report for duty, parking in a prohibited area, fighting, or being the subject of a complaint about poor service.
Taking advantage of the Thai need to save face, it'll be interesting to see whether it works.

And if that doesn't work they are forced to sing "I feel Pretty"

They also take away their black, and white, and make them drive this for the week.




runswithknives  Thursday Aug 9 03:18 PM

Medal of Honor...Hello kitty armband...
I dont see the difference.

"Crime Suppression Division"
What criminal is going to fear that man?



barefoot serpent  Thursday Aug 9 03:21 PM

And book perps with this



Weird Harold  Thursday Aug 9 04:04 PM

I'll see your laptop, and raise you an alarm clock.




Spiegelprime  Thursday Aug 9 04:25 PM

And instead of the normal night-stick they have to use this....




ps:I've been a lurker for a long time, glad I finally found something worth posting about :-)



wolf  Thursday Aug 9 04:50 PM

You would think that the customary canings would be more effective.

I think they should have to do full blown cosplay for more serious offenses.



DanaC  Thursday Aug 9 04:55 PM

Hallo Spiegel nice to have you on board



Piccolo Padawan  Thursday Aug 9 05:34 PM

and for those extra stubborn ones they have this...



Coign  Thursday Aug 9 05:59 PM

And replace their pistols with this.




Sheldonrs  Thursday Aug 9 06:06 PM

I feel like I just walked into a Kitty Porn site.



Cloud  Thursday Aug 9 06:09 PM

Pink. Police. Parading.

oh, the shame of it!



ferkelparade  Thursday Aug 9 06:55 PM

Is there any word on whether this actually works as a deterrent? I don't know about the average Thai policeman, but I'd do anything I could think of to get one of those armbands...



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Aug 9 07:24 PM

Welcome to the Cellar, runswithknives & Spiegelprime.

Real men don't Hello Kitty... real men Hello pussy.



aero geek  Friday Aug 10 11:23 PM

So what you are saying, Weird Harold, is that you consider having to drive a Ferrari 512TR for a week punishment? (OK, it's pink, but a valid assertion just the same:p )



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Aug 11 12:11 AM

Welcome to the Cellar, aero geek.

Yes, since the purpose is to embarrass bad cops by pointing them out, to the public and their peers, the pink Ferrari would be punishment.



morie  Saturday Aug 11 01:14 AM

I'd laugh if I saw that pink Ferrari. But I also think the Thai government is rather stupid. Wouldn't a heavy fine, jail time, a good solid beating, and / or loss of your job as a police officer be a more compelling deterrent?

Wouldn't that be a little severe for

Severe punishments create resentful, sullen, cops, and replacements are expensive to train and integrate into the force. That's why they're trying a little embarrassment. Only time will tell if it works.


Cicero  Saturday Aug 11 03:49 PM

God I want that car. Haaa! Who could I really piss off in that car?!?
Awesome......
Hello- Gimme more kitty.



wolf  Saturday Aug 11 04:32 PM

You'd piss me off by owning it instead of me.



DucksNuts  Monday Aug 13 12:51 AM

Wolf, seriously?



bluecuracao  Monday Aug 13 01:28 AM

Uh huh--Wolf's a serious Hello Kitty fan.

I big pink Hello Kitty Hummer.....sure.....but this just isnt working for me.

You ask and Google provides.

And oh ... my ... god. Following links of links. I crossed paths with this, a Hello Kitty replacement for parenting.

And that lead me straight to : http://www.kittyhell.com/

Little car, big engine. Faaaaaast.

Hummers look funny.

I want this. Fortunately it is not available in the United States.


Cicero  Tuesday Aug 14 12:07 PM

I almost bought a blue hello kitty sewing machine the other day.
(for a friend)
*clears throat*
I was raised on the kitty stuff in asia- so I have a good excuse right?
Oh- who cares...Who wants to support the Cicero fund for the hello kitty car?
Oooh- I can imagine that episode of "cops" now.....Awesome.

The other one just looks like Hello Pimpy.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Aug 14 12:12 PM

That's a Playboy Bunny on the Hummer, not a kitty.



Weird Harold  Tuesday Aug 14 08:58 PM

I saw that Hummer this morning before work. It says the Hello Kitty logo is on the driver's side, but they don't show the driver's side. It got late, and I had to go to work so, I gave up after that.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Aug 14 09:32 PM

The one pictured in post 28 is in England.



Coign  Wednesday Aug 15 12:20 PM

According to the post I linked to, they said there was a Hello Kitty logo on the driver side door.

I make no further claim to its authenticity other then what I found on that site.



Shawnee123  Wednesday Aug 15 12:51 PM

Playboy Bunny
pussy
kitty
Hello Kitty

Sorry, does this belong in word association?



Happy Monkey  Wednesday Aug 29 09:04 AM

Maybe those Thai police need to catch up on paperwork.



Trilby  Wednesday Aug 29 09:58 AM

^^ does wolf know about this? ^^



wolf  Wednesday Aug 29 11:15 AM

Oh, yes.
